As a general rule we recommend that you start planning your trip 12-18 months prior to your travel date. This gives you plenty of time to get sign off from senior leadership and to launch your trip in school to students and parents. Planning early will also mean you have a greater choice of accommodation and travel options.
If you start planning your trip later than this, don't worry, it is definitely possible to plan a trip in a shorter amount of time. We're here to support you and we have a selection of templates and useful guides to help guide you and save you time throughout the process.
Every trip we organise is unique and your itinerary manager will work with you to understand your curriculum and adapt the itinerary to suit your learning objectives. The itineraries featured on our website are just a sample of the what's achievable within a given timeframe. The trip duration and the activities and excursions can be tailored to your needs and budget.
